ok, when god tells the snake in the bible that it wil forever be at war with humans that isn't about two bloodlines, one of which is shapeshifiting
lizard men -its a desperate attempt to answer the question posed to theological academics in the old days when the bible was being written -why if god
made the world has he also made animals like snakes that just kill humans for no reason -it's a loop hole to get away with one of the major problems
with the creation myth.
god created everything, he set in motion a plan which only ends when the jews are in israel with a temple, etc then seven angels sound seven
trumpets.... Never does it suggest that lizard alien hybrids will end the world, so i'm saying if the end of the bible is wrong and the world is
ended by too many lizard babies then the bible is wrong, god is wrong, none of it happened and thus we can't base the proof of this on the bible....
see my problem?
heavy metal music isn't real, its written mostly by brainless idiots (i've met a few of them) who aren't very good at anything but writing nice
worlds and thrashing guitar solos.
that said, cow boys from hell is a great song, the meaning and angst which it portrays can be clearly seen in the lines "They say the bad guys wear
black / We're tagged and cant turn back" - because metalheads are often seen as terrible people, pierced demons out to destroy all thats good in the
world, by mainstream society they're saying 'well shucks, give a dog a bad name...'
Latter in the song again we see this sentiment "From my double barrel, 12 gauge, / Cant lock me in your cage" they are saying via metaphore that if
you try to oppress someone and cage them, force them to be something they don't want to be then they'll rebel and win as we see in "Were takin over
the song isn't about lizard people taking over the world it's about a generation fighting the social constraints of a moderately repressive society,
they're actively rejecting the religion and christian moral system which they;ve seen at best failing to deal with a modern world while most of the
time it simply makes the situation worse, they;ve seen the system being hypocritical, unfair and unjust and it's being forced on them by people that
treat them like scum. -they hate 'dull backwards christian america' so they pick the most opposite thing they can to offend it, they don't really
worship satan and they don't really know any lizard men.
oh and Devil's Child is clearly about a woman he's in love with, someone who is going to smash his life up because hes in love so much, she has her
claws in him, hes her slave, etc -its all very standard poetry, like a hack robert browning basically.
